7.1 Detour - Stop Gap

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the first day of each month is "Detour."
Ideally we go to the grocery store once a week. We plan every meal and snack and buy just what we need and it works for us.

Unless they don't have an essential, not easily substituted ingredient at our main store.  Then we are forced to go to the grocery store after work to buy that ingredient.
We needed polenta and our normal store doesn't carry a brand that is labeled gluten free (although they should all be gluten free, we don't take chances with cross contamination in production facilities), so that was that.  We now have polenta and two peppers that I will cut up for lunch tomorrow and Wednesday.

On the bright side, there were hardly any people at the store, so at least it was a quick errand. Now I need to go cook that polenta. We make a delicious polenta lasagna with sausage and portobello mushrooms, along with a ricotta, lemon, rosemary, and Parmesan cheese mixture.
To see what Bestest Friend wrote about the theme of the day, check out her blog, Too Legit to Quit.
